Media Development Indicators

By IPDC - 2008

The key question for those concerned with issues of free expression, good governance and human development, then, is how to nurture a media framework and practice which contributes to these overarching goals. This is a particularly acute concern in new or restored democracies, whose media systems have been warped or shattered by oppression, corruption or the effects of war and underdevelopment. This paper has been prepared in order to define indicators of media development in line with the priority areas of the International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC): promotion of freedom of expression and media; pluralism; development of community media; human resource development (capacity building of media professionals and institutional capacity building). The paper is firmly located in the framework established by the five UNESCO declarations on Promoting Independent and Pluralistic Media, endorsed by the Organization’s General Conferences, which provide the overarching set of principles from which these utcomes and indicators are derived.

Communication rights enable all people everywhere to express themselves individually and collectively by all means of communication. They are vital to full participation in society and are, therefore, universal human rights belonging to every man, woman, and child.
